Nobu-san, was a great guide, we were briefed what we were going to see and we still could change and add interesting places. At noon we went to a typical Japanese small restaurant with good food and affordable prices. Although our guidetour was foreseen for six hrs, we went over that. The trip was done with the public transport which was a good learning experience for us.

My 17 year old son, in Tokyo for two weeks of language school, joined me for a full day private tour with Eriko. Eriko was prompt, organized, approachable and friendly. We let her pick the itinerary and weren’t disappointed as we went from Buddhist shrine, to anime district, to Shinto shrine to a fabulous lunch in a hip shopping district. Eriko shared history with facts - while checking in to adjust her depth of details to our personal liking. Eriko was also willing to share a bit about her own life in Japan when we asked. This made for more interesting conversation about Japanese culture and history. Thank you Eriko and JGA for making our day tour in Tokyo awesome. I am looking forward to the next guides we plan to meet in Nara and Kyoto.

Mr. Seizo Kamiuto was punctual, picking me up at my hotel, and was ready with a plan of action, ensuring I didn't repeat any of the sights I'd seen before. He went above and beyond to navigate Tokyo's public transportation system with an upbeat demeanor, positive attitude, and historical knowledge to optimize our time and reach Sensoji Temple, Tokyo Skytree, Meiji Shrine, Imperial Palace, and other must-sees. He also made sure I had the best meals and served as my personal photographer (and an excellent one at that!). I highly recommend the Japan Guide Agency and Mr. Seizo for their knowledge and professionalism.

With the pandemic travel restriction at the time, I initially tested the requirements and booked just a six-hour tour in Tokyo. Once I was assigned to Tatsunobu, aka Ted, he promptly responded and made simple and constructive suggestions for the session. As we corresponded to finalize the itinerary, I then discovered my itinerary at the time did not meet the visa requirements, for which I quickly added multiple day tours to my stay in Tokyo. Ted was very responsive and were available for all the guided sessions I added, as well as revising and changing the itinerary catering to my needs since I had been to Tokyo prior multiple times. He even included a soju & sake tasting once I expressed interest to learn more of it. He took me to attractions & township that are off the beaten path and shared its significances & historic information. I will connect with Ted again for the next historic tour of Japan, wherever that shall take me.

First of all, thanks for your feedback. It was a fun challenge making your itinerary. Because you have visited Japan many times, I included some backstreets and historical background stories. Also a half day outside Tokyo was fun, while the weather was severely hot. Sake tasting at lunch time was very interesting. I have more pockets so that we can try further on your next trip to Japan. Regards, Ted

My wife and I had an amazing tour of Tokyo with Emiko. She was so knowledgeable of the history of Japan and Tokyo. We learned so much about the Emperor’s palace, various shrines and temples. Emiko took us to a great Soba restaurant where we dined on soba and tempura for lunch. She was very accommodating and took the time to give us detailed instructions on how to get around after the tour was over. I highly recommend Emiko as a tour guide if you’re ever planning on visiting Tokyo.

JGA will take care of all your planning and guide you on what is needed to visit Japan with its current restrictions. They made the process of being able to visit Japan very easy! Thank you!

Thank you very much for your comment on the Tokyo 6 hours tour. I am soooo happy to hear that you enjoyed the time with me as much as I enjoyed being with you two. So much fun we had together! It was my pleasure to guide you through the city of Tokyo, answering your questions about the history, culture, customs of Japan and the Japanese people. Thank you for coming to Japan and hope you come back! Warm regards, Emiko

My friend and I had a long layover in Tokyo, and we wanted to make the best of our limited time so we hired a guide from JGA (and it was required to get a visa). Our guide was Nobu. He was friendly and funny and very knowledgeable of the places we chose to visit. Our flight arrived early and we cleared quarantine procedures and immigration and customs sooner than expected but Nobu was already prepared for that and met us shortly after we were ready to depart the airport and head into Tokyo. He was also knowledgeable about the multiple Japan train systems and was able to guide us around and we flowed thru the multiple stops and connections like Tokyo natives. We visited Tsukiji Market, Asakusa, Shinjiku, and Harajuku. Highly recommend Nobu and JGA for your Tokyo/Japan tour!

Hiring a private guide and driver was worth every penny. Tokyo is MASSIVE so I saw so much of the city. Better yet, my guide, Tomoko, was fantastic. She was so kind and patient and knew all the insider tips and best places to take me. We went to a locals-only authentic yakitori chicken restaurant, and she introduced me to the best shop to get stunning and affordable Japanese dishes. I’m so grateful!

My tour with Minoru Asai was absolutely worth it. He planned the best way to see all my must sees in Tokyo. He shared a lot of knowledge about the history of the different districts in Tokyo and we had so many funny conversations. I loved how he reflected how the Japanese experience has evolved through time through the lenses of the different generations of his family. Additionally he is very caring, he spent a ton of time explaining different reference points and making sure I could learn how to navigate the city in a safe way. It feels like I was traveling with a friend!

I really appreciate your comment on my guiding you around Tokyo. Yes, it was also my feeling that I was going around with you like a friend because you also told me a lot about your life, your daily life, culture,. etc. It's one of the most precious asset as a guide to be able to learn a lot also from guests, and I really thank you for that. Please have great days staying safe until you come back to Japan again to enjoy this country with full of beautiful nature.

Our tour pulled together a variety of different sites across Tokyo, and was a wonderful introduction to the city. Despite rain for much of the day, Ted got us to all of the areas we had requested and provided thorough introductions to the various sites. He recommended a great place for lunch, took several great group photos, and helped pace the tour without rushing the group. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone looking to explore a broad mix of sites across Tokyo without having to worry about navigating the metro system alone.

I received your feedback review from my agent. I appreciate your comment. My guide is to use public transportation as much as possible. This enables them to visit more spots in time. Each site is not related, but Tokyo culture in all. Please return to Tokyo again, there are more places to visit. Hopefully on sunny days. Ted

Mr. Nobu was very punctual, kind, cheerful, and most importantly - knew the answers to all our questions. Of course, his ability to travel around Tokyo with us on public transport and show us the most important places in a short time, and to do it in a very Japanese way, was great. I am sure that if you are in Japan for the first time, this kind of help from a professional guide will be very useful for you. We highly recommend it.

And more - Mr. Nobu, thank you for all the pictures you took and kindly sent to us!
